  • New Children's Books:
      We very happily accept donations of only new books for Kindergarten through 5th graders (5 to 11 years old). We only give new books to the kids so they can feel a sense of pride and ownership in the books they earn by attending our reading clubs.

      While very rarely a concern, it would be best to steer away from books that address controversial or overtly religious topics (though books that happen to also include religious figures should be OK). As a 501(c)(3) we have to stay away from anything overtly religious or political.

      Preferred topics include anything that features diverse characters that the children we serve can relate to, or simply for them to see a diversity of characters.
    School supplies to be given to kids at our September reading clubs:
  • Spiral notebooks (such as those made by Mead, college or wide ruled)
  • 3-ring binders (1" to 2" flexible or firm, plain or the ones with pockets
        on one or both sides and fun characters and colors)
  • 3-ring pencil pouches
  • Colorful 2-pocket folders to carry letter-size sheets of paper
  • Large rectangular erasers (e.g. those manufactured by Pearl)
  • Mechanical pencils (especially "fun" ones kids would enjoy)
